In the first line, "...I used to sleep all the time." Instead of "je dormais tout le temps", can I write "j'avait l'habitude de dormir tout le temps"?
qu'est-ce que le rideau signifie?
So, the lesson on combining nouns says to use some form of à when describing a taste and the lesson gives the example of "glace à la vanille." That seems consistent with my memory of "pain au chocolat." So why is it "les œufs en chocolat" and not "au chocolat"? Thanks.

The sentence "Yet, the brochure was promising" is translated : « Pourtant, la brochure était prometteuse ». Why isn't "Quoique, la brochure était prometteuse" correct?
Bonjour Madame Cécile !
The lesson states that when talking about “time”- ‘avant’ and ‘après’ are used.
Now, if a sentence is ->
1.Mon chien court ______ le petit chat.
I think here, the answer should be “après” (after) because in English too, we say- The cops ran after the thief. But, why is the answer “derrière” ?
2. Regarde le bel oiseau perché ________ cet arbre !
Why is “sur” correct ? I had opted for “dans”. How can we judge the difference between “dans/sur l’arbre” ?
3. On admire les grands palmiers ________ l’île.
Again, here the answer is “sur” ? The other options- “dans/à” are not acceptable. What is the grammatical concept behind this?
